Stephen Carradini The most infectious indie-pop I heard all year. I couldn’t stop listening to it from the first time I heard it. My album of the year 2017 Favorite track: so so-so.

twigs 02:55
twigs At ten We hid outside We counted cold times and lied The hills Were steeper then We kicked our shoes off before going inside The sticks We saw as guns Twig hair pull trigger and a knotted site Oh oh oh I know you’d follow me anywhere I I I seem to have lost my way Way ay ay back when the water was potable We e e knew how to be lost At ten they’d throw the lights Unrealistically expecting quiet The nights Were darker then We knew they’d come but just didn’t know when The change So heavy now Was nothing to us and should be again Oh oh oh I know you’d follow me anywhere I I I seem to have lost my way Way ay ay back when the water was potable We e e knew how to be lost lost lost The ten Years that we ran Were nothing to us but won’t come again The hills We finally passed Only to see to the mountains at last I’ve led My friends so far Only to turn and ask where we are Oh oh oh I know you’d follow me anywhere I I I seem to have lost my way Way ay ay back when the water was potable We e e knew how to be lost lost lost

so so-so 03:54
Scream, it seems there’s no one you might wake Except of course yourself but that’s a good chance to take Build your days like diamonds blue and green And orange and red and yellow on the screen But still you fail to grasp And still forget to ask How a beautiful day has come to pass We stand toe to toe When everything is just so so-so We count the days as they go they go they go they go they go nowhere No no no no no no no no no no no no nowhere Pinch yourself, the day is almost done Your vanquished tasks all strewn across the lawn Behold another job to prey upon To love, to live your moment in the sun But still you fail at last And still forget to ask How a beautiful day has come to pass We stand toe to toe When everything is just so so-so We count the days as they go they go they go they go they go nowhere No no no no no no no no no no no no nowhere

I’ll be back tomorrow night Will you help me braid my hair Story books will take us there Tell your father everything Take your dirty plate downstairs Listen to the voice inside that cares I’ll be home soon Home for you Home for good, can it wait till I get there? Keep your sisters Both alive Can it wait till I arrive? We will see tomorrow night What we value most of all We will speak without our hearts and we’ll quickly take it back We will work through paper mountains majesty to the otherside See our problems as the only ones that count I’ll be home soon Home for you Home for good, can it wait till I get there? Keep your sisters Both alive Can it wait till I arrive?

Bright young eyes Were meant to look up to the skies Firm old hands Were meant to be matched keeping plans He beckons her in Her world starts to spin She’s living in pictures and linen It’s an old love for a young girl As she looks at her bedroom world She sees nothing but him a religion of them Between bed sheets and cut magazines She hasn’t a moment for me College dreams Life like her cut magazines Bright young minds Surrounded by only their kind Than she catches a glimpse Of a man fully realized She’s caught in his calm and his confidence Its an old song from a time long Before life was a thing on a screen And I’m ten feet away but we’ve nothing to say for she’s with him on some beach somewhere She hasn’t a moment to spare

don't blink 02:59
Don’t Blink Hey ma, can you see me now Head in the real clouds Man what a view The starlight we dreamt of our whole lives Springing from satellites and bending to you Old songs, I thought we sang wrong Turns out that all along The message came through There'll be no more cursing the big world Praying to youtube like you taught me to You said to Hold yourself to the stars They don’t look so big from where you are Hear them whisper your name Responding to our very first Radio waves, first challenge of space It’s your time, take a drink with the gods Don’t blink Hey friends, thanks for the comments Sure I see your intent I’ve felt that way too Oh and hey ma, it’s not like we don’t talk When did I get so tall Guess it’s just what happens when you Hold yourself to the stars (Hold yourself to the stars) They don’t look so big from where you are oh Hear them whisper your name (hear them whisper your name) Responding to our very first Radio waves, first challenge of space It’s your time, take a drink with the gods Don’t blink Don’t blink

until I 03:10
Your’s is a love worth hurting for That’s all I know for sure but Your’s is a love to care and feed Green ships on oceans of dirt I am a kid lost in the garden maze But I have your voice to follow And I knew, I knew, I knew everything until I, ‘till I, until I knew you Called to the depths by my own hand No matter where I stand it’s You always right by my side (you you you you ) You won’t believe the day I’ve just had I am still a kid picked last at every game But I have you on the sideline And I knew, I knew, I knew everything until I, ‘till I, until I knew you I will find my way to you ‘Cause I see right through the hedges And I knew, I knew, I knew everything until I, ‘till I, until I knew you

Patience my son The money will come Holster your doubt And remember that the world is round The road to end up Alone The signs you seek were taken long ago The road will make us Animal The lines we crossed will never cross our minds Go forth my song Doesn’t matter how far you’ve come Farther than me Farther than the eye can see The road to end up Alone The signs you seek were taken long ago The road will make us Animal The lines we crossed will never cross our minds Wait until dawn And the thunder moves along Time it just right Get away under the cover of night The road to end up Alone The signs you seek were taken long ago The road will make us Animal The lines we crossed will never cross our minds

After clawing at life for so long I know How to give up How to never give up anything After dancing with you many times i know Where my foot goes How to hold you and not spill my drink The night won’t hate Quite like the day So in the dark I promise I would wait, I would wait tables the rest of my life And I would take oh I would take real estate classes at night I’d build a fire From all of these songs At least keep us warm if you won’t sing along And we could make peace With the piece of ourselves That lives just to drink but only top shelf There’s a bar open just down the street from here Look in my eyes and we instantly find ourselves there There’s a booth in the corner that knows our names We take our seats and it takes us the rest of the way The night won’t hate Quite like the day So in the dark I promise I would wait, I would wait tables the rest of my life And I would take oh I would take real estate classes at night I’d build a fire From all of these songs At least keep us warm if you won’t sing along And we could make peace With the piece of ourselves That lives just to drink but only top shelf

wait up 03:26
Our unknowing son He’s all we are He’s our true calling now he’s a star In outer space Freezing cold Nothing to carry sound His eyes Not unlike mine They burn with rage They burn with unbridled age Yet when I Still found a light He isn’t looking, isn’t looking Up up we won’t wait we won’t wait, up up we won’t wait we won’t wait up He stands alone In his crowd of friends Looking in first last to us His eyes Where to begin No one sees the world from the space that he’s in Up up we won’t wait we won’t wait, up up we won’t wait we won’t wait up Our unknowing son Our only one Who would care if we disappeared Joy escapes him still What can we do With just our will Up up we won’t wait we won’t wait, up up we won’t wait we won’t wait up

sparks 01:47
Saw your smile without delusion Played in something I could lose in Sparks spit from our broken phones We wander off at last alone in love All my days are coming true We wish for nothing more to do Nothings here and it’s not going anywhere I only stipulated you You and the blankness that we two Enjoy together for no good reason So your smile without delusion Played in something I could lose in Sparks spit from our broken phones We wander off at last alone in love
